Both of my coats from previous years were beyond their expiration date... something about stains and buttons missing not being chic?! I hated to see them go, especially the Marc Jacobs coat I convinced my dad to purchase on super sale while I was in nursing school with no job. All good things must come to an end though. This pretty replacement was on sale for $169.99 with an additional 30% off at J.Crew a few weeks ago. Yahtzee!
